(From : Square Roger-Stéphane and Récamier Street). A little bit further on de Sèvres street, you'll now find, this time on your left, the Lutetia Hotel.
The Art Nouveau Lutetia Hotel, located not far from the Bon Marché department store, was build in 1910, and has a rich history. After World War I, many artists such as Picasso, Matisse, André Gide, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett or Saint-Exupéry took residence in the hotel. Charles de Gaulle spend his honeymoon here.
During World War II, the hotel became the headquarters of German counter-espionage, but When Paris was liberated, it was used as a repatriation center for returnees from the concentration camps.
Today, the luxury hotel has a "David Lynch Signature Suite" and other similar artist-designed suites, as well as two restaurants.
